Abstract [en]

More Electric Aircraft technology enables the power supply of electric energy weapons such as high-power microwave and laser weapons. Aspects of electric power generation, energy storage, distribution and pulse-conditioning systems for the power supply of directed energy weapons in Unmanned Aerial Vehicle are addressed in this paper. A trend in aircraft design is to electrify more parts of the aircraft via the concept of More Electric Aircraft (MEA) and its technology which allows for increased electric power consumption. Thus, MEA technology enables the power supply of weapons and protection systems that are using electric energy. Among these devices directed energy weapons such as high-power microwave (HPM) and laser weapons are feasible. Such systems require high power pulsed electric energy with, thus imposing new requirements of on-board power supplies. In the demonstrated concept it is important to analyze power losses and efficiency as well as weight and volume in order to evaluate the possibility to adapt the system in an UAV.
